Absolutely delicious. Easy to make. I made it in a crockpot and cooked it on high for 5 hours. Thanks for a great recipe.

I was really surprised at how delicious this dish was. I made the recipe as directed except for adding 1 chopped onion and some celery and using just 1 large potato. My grandson was with us for dinner and he devoured his stew.I will make this again.

This was very good. I used homemade frozen meatballs, fingerling potatoes and low sodium tomato sauce, beef bullion and no added salt. I put it together in the crock pot in the morning and came home to a hardy meal which was very welcoming since it had been raining all day. Since there's only the 2 of us, the rest went in the freezer for future meals.

this was great! (I used frozen meatballs, don't hate me for that, we had them on hand and I wanted to use them up)
I was able to throw this all into the crock pot before I went to work and came home to delicious meal... cooked on low for 7 hours and then my daughter turned the crock to "keep warm" till dinner time.

This was okay but I actually thought it was lacking in flavour. I made as written except that I omitted the mushrooms which were optional anyways. After 1 hour of cooking, the veggies were still very hard so I turned up the heat by 25 degrees and cooked another 30 minutes. Also, I tasted it after the first hour and thought it needed some spices added so put in some marjoram, more garlic, worcestershire and a bay leaf. This did help, but for me it was still missing something. Thx for sharing your recipe!

YUMMMY!! This really was a delicious stew. I especially love the red wine. I cooked mine in a tall pot on the stove for an hour on medium, and it was perfect. I browned the meatballs in a skillet, leaving the inside nice and raw to finish cooking in the stew (kept them from drying out). I also used fresh thyme in the meatballs, which I found to be a little overpowering, so dried is definitely the way to go. I also recommend doubling the water and beef consomme, as I had WAY too many veggies and not enough broth. You might even add more red wine :D My boyfriend and I went running in the cold and rain before dinner so the stew would taste better ;)
